Fans of the hit fantasy show were left reeling after Kit Harington's Jon Snow was stabbed to death in the last installment of season five, which aired in the U.S. last month (Jun15), and Nutter, who directed the key episode, has now revealed he was subsequently interrogated by Game of Thrones-lover Obama.

He tells Entertainment Weekly, "Three weeks ago, I was the in the company of the President of the United States. He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, 'You didn't kill Jon Snow did you?' I said, 'Jon Snow is deader than dead.' I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo (Bay detention centre) or something, but fortunately I'm here - but he's dead."

The news comes amid a slew of rumours suggesting Snow is set to be resurrected in the upcoming season six after Harington was photographed arriving in Belfast, Northern Ireland over the weekend (18-19Jul15) just as filming for the next series is getting underway there.
